I did this challenge last year, as I have always struggled with mental health issues like depression and anxiety, but this year it is even more dear to my heart. In September of last year, I was diagnosed with a rare illness that shut down my nervous system. I was left for weeks with no use of my arms, legs, waist ... I couldnt do anything for myself. Couldnt walk, couldnt eat properly, couldnt wash... I wanted to die, but I was so ashamed of feeling that way, I didnt think I could tell people that. I felt so sorry for myself, I wasn't sure I wanted to be here anymore. I was in constant pain, I was lonely and I was bored. I cried myself to sleep nearly every night. I felt there was no reason for me to be here. Fast forward four months, I am walking, I am driving, I am back to work and I am glad I was able to over come the darkness inside of me and keep pushing. I am slowly gaining my life back. Mental illness affects so many people, and nearly every single one, differently. We need to stop being afraid to talk about it, we need to make it less taboo, we need to help those that need it so we may be able to save their lives.
